XeTeX is then a blessing for you. If you need Chinese for your Beamer  
presentations and you encounter problems, at the risk of sounding  
annoying, I will insist on the Beamer mailing list (not to mention  
the XeTeX mailing list) ---Prof. Tantau is a really nice person,  
always willing to help and improve his packages to everyone needs --- 
e.g., pgf/TikZ, which you can use with TeX, LaTeX or ConTeXt, has  
compatibility drivers even for Textures, vTeX, tex4ht, etc.
